By the Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2016-17 season. Each week during the off-season, By the Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on goaltender Petr Mrazek.
When it comes to talent and confidence, goalie Petr Mrazek is the epitome. He believes in himself completely and he's proven he has the raw ability to back up his confident attitude.
Last season was a roller coaster ride for Mrazek. He showed flashes of regaining his superior form but in reality, his good outings versus his poor outings were close to a 50-50 split.
Mrazek, 25, is in the second year of a two-year, $8 million contract with a $4 million cap hit. He will be a restricted free agent after next season.
Detroit is banking on the inconsistencies of youth as the reason for Mrazek's recent struggles.
Because of his age, it appears unlikely the Wings will leave him unprotected in this month's upcoming Expansion Draft.
